Fluxus Haunted House

Incomplete design. Please feel free to add rooms, change rooms, or alter floor plan.

The Tomato Torture room is designed to demonstrate the Art Guy's principle that QUANTITY HAS A QUALITY ALL ITS OWN.

More detail about the room: The floor of the room is ten feet below the bottom of the door. The room should be filled up with smashed tomatoes to the bottom of the door (a ten foot deep pit of tomato mush). A sign on the door would instruct entrants 1. to carefully let themselves down into the tomato pit until they encounter the narrow walking ledge (12 inches wide and submerged approximately 4.75 feet below the top of the tomato pit) and 2. to carefully follow this ledge counter clockwise around the outside of the room to the ladder up to the exit door. For most people not much more than their head will stick out above the tomatoes as they slog and hug their way around the outside of the room. Losing ones footing on the ledge will result in sinking into the 10-foot deep tomato pit and likely suffocation and drowning. To ensure that room entrants do not chicken out, the entrance door to the room will automatically close shut and lock as soon as they begin to lower themselves onto the submerged walking ledge.
